When I was little, my poor momma would always get notes from my teachers saying, Lord, this child loves to talk! It was true then, and it’s true now—I love speaking!
Not only do I love words, I love people. Put the two together, and I’m almost giddy with joy! To impart hope, ignite souls, and inspire belief in their God-given abilities—that is where great things begin to happen.
People want to do great work. People want to make a difference. People want to be seen, to be heard. They want to know they matter, and that their work matters. This is the drum that I beat: work is a glorious platform for doing our greatest good. A little bit of heart-driven leadership in the workplace could set the world on fire.
And I’ve got a decade (and then some) of leading and loving teams of talented individuals—top producers in their field. Leading my teams to the top of their game has been the joy of my life. It would be an honor to speak at your workplace, your non-profit, your women’s group—anywhere people come together to create, collaborate, and contribute. I would love to share the message of turning job hours into joy hours with the people you love and lead.
I offer keynote speaking on the following topics:
- The Not Enoughs Must Die – Overcoming Self-Limiting Beliefs
- God Loves Work – A Biblical View of Work
- Turn Job Hours into Joy Hours – Become an On-The-Job Difference-Maker
- War in the Workplace – See Every Challenge Through the Lens of Faith
- Transform Your Workplace – Bring Out the Best & Build A Culture of Trust
- No Separation Between the Sacred & Secular – Compassion in The Workplace
- Engage Your People & Grow Your Business – Leadership Beyond the Nine-to-Five
It has been a pleasure to work with Joan, a true professional, on the growth and changes at the salon where she served as Director of Operations. Her attention to detail, organizational skills, problem solving ideas and genuine caring for those who work for the organization are a model of leadership.
This special lady only needs to speak a few words and you know her heart. She speaks from a great understanding of God’s Word and is passionate to share those truths with others. She is humble, energetic, honest, and wise. Her passion is contagious.
Not only was she a dynamic speaker that was easy to listen to; but she took the time to get to know our ladies as individuals and encouraged so many with her sweet spirit. She brought Biblical truths to life in practical, applicable ways and gave us much to think about with her scriptural insights. It was a highlight to work with Joan as the retreat chairperson and to now consider her a friend.
Joan is a natural mentor, a fantastic speaker, and she draws in whomever she’s speaking to with memorable anecdotes, stories, and examples. Her deep experience in leadership and the spa industry allows her to share valuable knowledge and insight with a large variety of audiences.
Our company is very focused on systems, and we consider it a major reason for our success. With that said, the real key to any business endeavor is leadership. Systems without heart-driven leadership will not inspire individuals to reach their full potential or to feel loyalty to the company. Joan’s in-salon training has challenged us to embrace both love and accountability, and we are forever grateful for her lessons on salon leadership. Her teachings have made a difference in our business and in our hearts.
